When we come into this world, we are anxiety and fear free. What we learn from there on, based on our environment and situations we encounter. This forms the basis of our beliefs, attitudes and responses, all of which drive our behaviour. Learn how to unlearn unhelpful anxiety thinking styles and empower yourself to believe in being able to deal with situation that life presents to you.
Panic attacks are a frightening and scary experience. Anxiety and panic attacks are one of the most common symptoms that I work with. As frightening as panic attacks are, the good news is that there is a lot that can be done to overcome them.
Anxiety blights the lives of increasingly large numbers of people. It may initially be focused on realistic concerns – such as financial difficulties, health, job insecurity or unemployment, relationship problems (particularly complex in blended families) and fears about the future in an increasingly uncertain world – but then spiral out of control.
Or it may have no clear cause and manifests as an ever-present feeling of being ‘wired’, tense or vulnerable, very often accompanied by out-of-control thoughts. Left unaddressed, chronic anxiety can badly affect sleep and physical, as well as mental health.
Stress and the eventual Fight and Flight Panic Attack often become the norm, restricting life and even simple pleasures become unfulfilled.
